An American Tail Wiki

The main street of Green River at sunset.

Green River is a sleepy old town in the west, surrounded by desert. Cat R. Waul lures mice from New York there in An American Tail: Fievel Goes West as part of his evil scheme to eat them. The town is nearly a ghost town by the time the Mousekewitz family arrives by train. It is implied in both the film and in Fievel's American Tails to have been an old mining boom town, but the mines have since dried up. There are still some humans living there, but they are blissfully unaware of the clothed talking animals living among them. Green River's sheriff is Wylie Burp
